A few years ago I magically found Wicked Intentions at my local library while browsing the stacks and discovered a world of action, adventure, romance and some incredible chemistry. From that moment forward, the world of Maiden Lane found a special place in my heart.
Within each book that was to follow I found the elusive Ghost of St. Giles that magically appeared, and a running theme of helping those less fortunate than yourself. This series has everything a loyal reader could ever want and more!
At the beginning of each chapter Elizabeth provides a few paragraphs of a carefully penned story that is vital to the novel and one that will leave you dreaming of fairy tales and far off places.
In anticipation of the release of The Duke of Sin next week I have devoted this week on the blog to highlighting each book in the series so far.
